First off, I apologise for my tardiness in visiting your blogs and responding to your generous comments. My excuse? The never ending demands of the Indian extended family. And finishing touches to my upcoming trip to Japan.

I leave tomorrow – early day after actually – and shall not be posting anything new for a couple of weeks, except perhaps some images on the go. But I will certainly use any free time I can find, to do some blog housekeeping (haven’t updated my index in ages!) and catch up with your comments.

So Sayonara for now folks!

Stay well……….and don’t forget me while I am gone 😀
